A revised demolition plan for the remainder of the Didcot A power station with the three remaining cooling towers and chimney has been cleared by RWE Npower and is now planned for summer 2019.
The demolition should have been completed a year ago, but something went wrong and the boiler house collapsed while it was being weakened for demolition. Four employees were killed. The view from the Margaret Brown Gardens in Abingdon looking down the River Thames still shows the chimney and part of the remaining towers in the summer of 2018.
They will still be visible from the south of Abingdon for another year.
